Graduate and Professional School Day

Graduate and Professional School Day is part of Cornell's annual event offering students the opportunity to talk informally with representatives from diverse graduate and professional schools from around the country virtually. A wide variety of graduate and professional schools and health-related programs will be represented at the event on Wednesday, September 30, 2020, 4:00 pm—7:00 pm.

Graduate and Professional School Day combines Cornell’s traditional Graduate School Day and Law School Day into one event. It offers students the opportunity to talk informationally with admissions representatives from around the country. Sign in to chat with school representatives to learn about features of their schools and admissions criteria, and to ask your questions. It is not necessary to dress up; school attire is fine.

Your time at Graduate and Professional School Day will be most effective if you prepare in advance of attending. Knowing basic information about the graduate/professional schools, as well as what's important to you in choosing where to apply and ultimately where to attend, will help you decide what you need to learn from the representatives at the event.
